The first time I went to Kauai, I did some scuba diving and surfing. This time, thirty years, two knee surgeries and various other orthopedic injuries later, I didn't do either. However, the patio of the condo we rented was just yards from one of the best surf spots on the island. So I watched and took photos instead. I took MANY pics of folks surfing, but I will only bore you with a few. (I promise there will be scenery pics very soon).
This guy was probably the best surfer we saw. He was great on big or small waves, but obviously he could handle pretty much anything.
Where I live, you don't see ANYONE surfing without a wetsuit on.
This guy was lucky enough to spend a few seconds of this ride "in the tube." The photo came out kind of blurry, so I didn't post it. Too bad...
There was even people surfing on stand-up paddle boards. This guy was pretty good at it.
Of course, I had to take a few pics in black and white, into the sun. The kind of shot that most photography teachers would give you an "F" grade on (but I love anyway).
